San Leandro is known for its charming, older homes. But these beautiful homes can quickly turn into condemned heaps if mold gains a foothold inside of them. Our company has offered mold inspection and remediation services in the bay area for decades, we have an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau for work performed by our in-house trained and certified experts.
Older homes become more vulnerable to mold invasions as tiny cracks form in the structure, allowing water to seep in and dust from outside to hide. The tiniest bit of water can be more than enough for a full-blown mold colony to spawn from a single spore, and a single spore can wait around for years until conditions are right, then erupt into a colony in a matter of days. Many older homes were built with more nooks and crannies than newer homes, offering mold not only places to hide, but the poor airflow that creates the stagnant atmosphere mold thrives in. Our inspection, competitively priced at $299, will find these problem areas in your home and outline them for you.
Mold invasions can cost thousands of dollars in property damage as the fungus destroys everything and anything it grows on, from wood to sheetrock. But more alarming is the damage posed to your health. Any type of fungi can cause an allergic reaction or an infection, but many species produce poisonous mycotoxins as well. These toxins saturate the tissues of the mold, including the airborne spores. When inhaled for a prolonged period of time- like over the course of a few years spent living in an infested home- mycotoxins build up in your body and start causing serious health problems ranging from skin rashes to heart damage to cancer. The elderly and young children are particularly at risk for neurological disorders such as dementia and learning disabilities. Our inspection includes lab testing to determine the species of mold present in your home and their concentrations.
